Cv and maternity leave

(5 Posts)

Just wanted opinions please -

I worked for an organisation for several years, and didn't return after maternity leave with DC4. I received SMP, gave notice that I wasn't coming back etc.

On my CV would you put the last employment dates for that role up as the start of maternity leave (ie the last time I actually worked there) or the end (when I stopped being employed/getting SMP)?

I have had other jobs since, but they have been through recommendation so I haven't needed to submit a CV. I am interested in another role now and so am trying to update it.

I would put the date your employment officially ceased, after maternity leave.

Yes agreed - when you were officially no longer under contract to them.

This situation also applies to me. I've never thought of doing the above. I'd better go and update my cv too! Thanks
